c4040 - taken over by c4000, c7xx series as they are cheaper!

as for c5050 - a new release but slightly different form from the cx040 series.

my dad got it for 1599 at the electronics store at 3rd level, ck tang's. but when i checked the olympus singapore, they said the price was the recommended retail price then. that was 23/9/02 when my dad bought it. less than 2 1/2 months later, the c5050 came out for 1499 with "free gifts" too! sigh... even the money is not mine, i also heart pain....

i'm a newbie myself, so i just take conventional logic to take care of my 4040: keep dust away from it. don't teach the camera to swim :D

and no, i'm trying to say, that possibly that price of the 4040 at 1599 then was just before the 5050 came out. the 5050's made in japan, if i'm not mistaken. only differences i notice from reviews - lack of hot shoe, only smartmedia can be used, 4.0 megapixels max (actually 3.9 mpels effective) and that's about it.

if the 4040 is still being sold for 1599 now, i'll chop the head of the person who does that - cos the 5050 is only 1499! :p

Additional Cost
Olympus C-5050Z don't come with (a) remote controller and (b) Ac adaptor. Both are sold separately as accessories and expensive. G3 provide both as package.

Self-Timer
Olympus C-5050Z self-timer is set only to 12 seconds. G3 self-timer can be adjusted from 2-10secs.

Limited Zoom
Olympus C-5050Z is 3X while G3 is 4X.

Design Wise
G3 has the inframous lens in viewfinder problem. C-5050Z has the infamous flash problem. The flash is at the hand-grip side so postion of the hand is important. Hand may block the flash light if hand not position correctly.

Anyway, I still like my Olympus C-5050Z over G3. :)

Thanks. :)

Can I check with you on the shutter lag and focusing speed? Is the shutter lag good? less than 1s? Can it focus fast? How bad is the CA? Only in Zoom?

Thanks again...

Sorry mystic, borrow your thread, :embrass:

Not necessary clearer(sharper?) but you need less light to focus, so af a bit faster loh (in theory)

I don't open up to f1.8 on my c4040 in normal day shootings...

If you dun really need the 10x zoom.. why not consider the C-4000 as well? It's the small brother of the C-4040 and in some areas better than the C-730.
